PG&E: Feds allege utility violated terms of its criminal probation in the San Bruno explosion, judge sets hearing

SAN FRANCISCO — In another blow to embattled PG&E, federal officials say the utility may have violated the terms of its probation imposed after the deadly San Bruno pipeline explosion by failing to reveal that it was being investigated for causing
a fire and settling a lawsuit over that and two other blazes.
Judge William Alsup ordered its lawyers to appear in court Jan. 30 to answer to allegations filed by a federal probation officer in U.S. District Court documents Wednesday.
Federal Probation Officer Jennifer Hutchings wrote in the filing that the company did not report to its probation officer that it reached a $1.5 million settlement with Butte County in October for its role in causing three 2017 fires. It also did not
report that it was being criminally investigated by the District Attorney in one of those blazes, dubbed the Honey Fire, for failure to properly trim trees near its power lines. The criminal investigation was dropped and
no charges were filed.
“At no time did Pacific Gas and Electric Company report this investigation by the Butte County District Attorney’s Office to the probation office,” Hutchings wrote.
Alsup oversees the company’s criminal probation following its conviction on six felonies related to the 2010 San Bruno explosion killed eight people. In addition to fines and other penalties, in 2017, then-U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson placed
the utility on five years of probation, during which time it was ordered not to “commit another federal, state, or local crime.”
In a separate filing Wednesday, Alsup proposed that he change PG&E’s probation to force changes aimed at reducing “to zero the number of wildfires caused by PG&E in 2019.”
“In light of PG&E’s history of falsification of inspection reports, PG&E shall, between now and the 2019 Wildfire Season, re-inspect all of its electrical grid and remove or trim all trees that could fall onto its power lines, poles or equipment
in high-wind conditions,” the judge wrote.
He also said the company has to monitor its grid and wind conditions “and may supply electricity only through those parts of its electrical grid it has determined to be safe under the wind conditions then prevailing.”
In a statement issued late Wednesday a PG&E spokesman, James Noonan, said, “We are aware of Judge Alsup’s orders and are currently reviewing. We are committed to complying with all rules and regulations that apply to our work.”
In recent days, PG&E has said it is considering selling off its gas division and replacing members of its board of directors as it struggles with liabilities from the 2017 North Bay fire and the Camp Fire in November that killed 86 people and devastated
the Town of Paradise. The price of its stock plummeted this week and company is pondering a bankruptcy filing.
It has reported in regulatory findings that it is vastly underinsured for the estimated $14 billion in liabilities it is facing over recent wildfires.
A lawyer involved in the San Bruno case said aid she was both surprised, but also not surprised that PG&E was found to not report properly.
“It seems irresponsible for PG&E to not report any possible violation of probation,” she said. “You’d think they’d be under high alert … It would be the first thing a responsible corporation would do,” said Attorney Britt Strottman, who represented
the city of San Bruno after the deadly explosion.
She said the judge should reopen the utility’s punishment.
“They probably should be re-sentenced,” said Strottman, a former San Mateo prosecutor. “That might be the only way they learn their lesson. A slap on the wrist will not change the culture of PG&E.”

PG&E’s major review of finances, operations, management rattles Wall Street amid bankruptcy fears

PG&E shares plummeted on Monday amid a wide-ranging internal review by the embattled utility that raised the prospect of asset sales, a management shakeup and even bankruptcy due to mounting legal, criminal and regulatory challenges unleashed by lethal wildfires that scorched Northern California in 2017 and 2018.

The gyrations in PG&E’s stock could intensify pressure on the state Legislature to bail out the utility from its wildfire-related liabilities and create a smooth path for the utility to pass along those costs to its customers.

“It’s not the Legislature’s responsibility to bail out a company that has shown negligence and disregard for public safety,” said state Sen. Jerry Hill, whose district includes parts of Santa Clara and San Mateo counties as well as San Bruno.

The utility behemoth’s shares nosedived 22.3 percent, or $5.45 a share, and closed at $18.95 on Monday. PG&E declined comment about the stock market decline or the rumors that now swirl around the company.

“The board is actively assessing PG&E’s operations, finances, management, structure, and governance,” the company said Friday.

This sort of review by a publicly held company of its own operations can include studying sales or spin-offs of operating units, as well as an assessment about whether the company should consider a bankruptcy filing if it is unable to meet its financial obligations.

“There is no set timeline, but the process is well underway,” PG&E spokeswoman Lynsey Paulo said Monday. “No decisions have been made and no options have been ruled out.”

San Francisco-based PG&E’s widening challenges could prompt state lawmakers and Gov. Gavin Newsom, who took over as California’s chief executive on Monday, to craft solutions to keep the state’s largest utility afloat financially.

“If the financial viability of PG&E is in jeopardy, then state policy makers would have to think long and hard about how to address that,” said Paul Patterson, an analyst with Glenrock Equities, an investment firm.


PG&E faces potential wildfire liabilities that have increased dramatically.

“It is not surprising to us that PG&E would be assessing a range of alternatives, given the financial duress the company is experiencing,” Stephen Byrd, a Morgan Stanley analyst, wrote Monday in a research note. Byrd added, “We believe a bankruptcy filing is relatively unlikely, but we do believe a sale of the gas utility business is a possible way to address wildfire claims.”

State fire investigators have linked PG&E’s equipment to 17 of the fires that occurred in 2017. PG&E suffered equipment failures in the origin area of the deadly Camp Fire blaze in Butte County last November.

As of the end of September, PG&E estimated that wildfire-related claims against the company totaled $2.79 billion, nearly five times as much as the $561 million in such wildfire claims the company reported as of the end of December 2017, according to a company regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

In a Nov. 13 filing with the SEC, PG&E disclosed it had borrowed $3 billion under its existing credit facilities. “No additional amounts are available” from PG&E’s respective revolving lines of credit, the filing stated.

PG&E became a convicted felon in 2016 after one of its gas pipelines exploded and killed eight people in San Bruno in 2010. In 2015, the state Public Utilities Commission imposed a $1.6 billion penalty on PG&E for causing the disaster, the largest financial punishment ever levied on an American utility.

The state Legislature has already shielded PG&E from financial hazards in connection with the Wine Country fires in October 2017, legislation that critics have blasted as a bailout of the utility. The legislative package also created a way for PG&E to ward off liabilities for wildfires that began in 2019 or years after.


However, what was missing from the legislation was any protection PG&E needs following the wildfires of 2018, such as the blazes that tore through Butte County and essentially destroyed the town of Paradise in November.

“Last year in January, PG&E’s surrogates warned lawmakers about bankruptcy,” Hill said. “The company eventually got a bailout. A year later, PG&E is back using the same playbook.”
